Curt Swan's Superman



My nieces were over this evening, so I will tell you the story of the night of the Mighty Dog tomorrow. For now, enjoy this page of Curt Swan profile sketches, although several near the bottom seem dubious at best.

Curt Swan was one of my favorite artists when I was a kid. As far as I'm concerned, he was THE Superman artist. Some of the best superhero artwork from the 70s was penciled by Curt Swan and inked by Murphy Anderson (who was a great all-around comic artist himself). Swan, along with John Buscema, was one of the first artists to be signed to a company exclusive contract for six figures. (Swan at DC, Buscema at Marvel.) There's a reason those two guys got that kind of commitment in those days--they were great at what they did.

I've learned a lot about comic book stuff since visiting your blog. I don't ever remember hearing of Curt Swan before.
